NEW YORK, January 30, 2015 – Thomson Reuters today announced it is expanding the Checkpoint Learning Tax Research Certificate Program to the academic market. The program is designed to help students develop foundational tax research knowledge, ensuring consistency and accuracy in their research while displaying competence to prospective employers. This valuable resource can be added to students’ existing coursework to improve the quality of their federal and state tax research and enhance the speed and quality of their work.

Delivered via the powerful CPEasy platform, the Checkpoint Learning Tax Research Certificate Program includes an online course, webinars, a tailored case study, and interaction and feedback from an instructor. The program equips students with the tools they need to effectively and efficiently perform federal and state tax research, giving them a competitive edge in the job market and a higher level of confidence in their preparation once they leave the classroom.

“From dependence on unreliable internet sources, to lack of clarity on the import of law, case law, commentary and treatises, many tax leaders find their staff underprepared to perform real-world tax research, which has significant time and cost implications to organizations,” said Eli Dicker, executive director of the Tax Executives Institute (TEI).

“Professors know that tax research competency is vital to their students’ success, but learning the necessary skills to become a successful tax practitioner can be challenging,” said Ken Koskay, CPA, CFP, and senior vice president of learning solutions with the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters. “This program serves as an enhancement to the traditional curriculum, preparing students with high-quality training and essential skills to stand out to potential employers and ensure success in their future career.”
